Lenovo Philippines country manager Michael Ngan led the unveiling of the two Windows-based devices on Monday, Sept. 22, at the company’s new office in Bonifacio Global City.

Constructed out of machine-cut aluminum, ThinkPad 8 is an 8.3-inch multi-mode netbook while ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a 14-inch third-generation ultrabook, dubbed as the world’s lightest in its size category.

ThinkPad 8’s three-mode functions are designed for people on-the-go who can choose to use it in a tablet mode, tent mode, or desktop mode by connecting it to the optional keyboard base, dock or monitor.

The X1 Carbon, however, is touted as a “featherweight heavyweight” as it weighs only 2.8 pounds yet bears a premium ultrabook performance. It is powered by Intel Core i7 processors with vPro and GT3 graphics combined with a WQHD 2560×1440 display features.

In addition, X1 Carbon is made from carbon fiber, which weighs less than magnesium and aluminum, but is tougher than both.

Adaptability is one of X1 Carbon’s main capabilities. It has an adaptive keyboard which adjusts based on the software or application being used. It can also integrate voice and gesture control.

The device uses Rapid Charge technology, which provide 80 percent charge in less than one hour. It also addresses docking needs of users via a special connector called OneLink which helps eliminate cable clutter. This allows users to get power, Gigabit Ethernet, and dual-display support.

X1 Carbon is priced at P105,000 while ThinkPad 8 is set at P25,490 and are available Lenovo exclusive stores and corporate resellers nationwide.

“The ThinkPad 8?s multi-mode design and extreme portability and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon?s professional display and new interactive methods are a testament to Lenovo?s continuous pursuit towards perfection as it advances in the PC Plus era,” Ngan said.
